To fear life, is to not life.
To hide is to not breathe.

To lie is to not be real.

So why?

Why not live?

Why not breathe?

Why not be real?

The answer is you’re scared.

You hear things about life.

You feel that if you don’t hide things will come get you.

You feel that if you don’t lie people will know you.

What is so bad about life?

What is so bad about things coming after you?

Even better what are the things that will come after you?

What is so bad that everyone will know you?

Life is crazy.

People can’t make up their minds.

People do and say hurtful things.

People are the things that will come after you.

People are what’s bad about life.

If you are known, then people suck up into their games.

Regardless if they’re nice, or mean, you play, because you are known.

That is what is so bad about being known.

People yes they are hateful, mean, cruel, rude, and some are even scary.

People, listen! There not all bad, some are nice, sweet, kind, and even loving.

So take you fear and turn it into bravery.

Stop being scared, and turn it into strength.

Take a step outside, and breathe but don’t hide.

Don’t lie, be truthful or you are the people.
